    Road accident in Braintree


    Here are three good reasons why you should not delay in making your compensation claim after a road accident in Braintree.

    More chance of success for a claim after a road accident in Braintree

    It does appear that the claims made soonest after an accident are more successful than those left till towards the end of the three year time limit. It can only be assumed that this is because the events are fresher in everyone’s mind say after a month, than they will be after nearly three years, so the evidence is more readily accepted.

    The financial problems caused by a road accident in Braintree

    Accidents have a habit of creating extra expenses at a time when you income could be reduced if you have had to lose time from work because of the accident, or maybe you are a pensioner on a fixed income or relying on state benefits. In any of these situations you would not have spare money to pay for these extra, unplanned costs, and the sooner your claim is settle the better.

    Make sure you get receipts for anything you have to pay out, as they can be recouped as part of your claim, providing you have proof you had to pay them.

    Stopping others suffering the same fate as you

    Some accidents are caused through negligence and some through people being reckless. Whatever the reason is, it needs to be stopped so that other victims do not suffer the same fate as you. There are times when it is only by making a claim that mistakes are highlighted and stopped, and at other times the guilty party does not realise just how dangerous their actions are.

    Making a claim after a road accident in Braintree

    UK law gives you a legal right to compensation, and morally you should try to stop the same accident happening to others. Apart from the fact that the sooner you make your claim, the sooner you will receive your compensation, any good law firm will tell you not to delay in making your personal injury compensation claim.

    At Accident Advice Helpline our 14 years’ experience of successfully making claim has enabled us to make the process simple, quick and efficient, which is why most of our claimants do not have to attend court. Our solicitors are able to settle most claims before they reach that stage, while not compromising the amount you are awarded.

This is so that we know anyone entitled to make a claim can, no matter what his or her financial status is. They do not have to worry about finding cash for their claim to be started or if it is not won.
